1.How Often Do I Need To Have Follow-Up Appointments?

Periodontist Dr. Kissel will create a customized treatment plan for each of his New York City patients based on their specific needs and stage of periodontal disease. It is important to note, that once Dr. Kissel performs your dental therapy to treat your periodontal disease, the work doesn’t stop there. Periodontist Dr. Kissel recommends that his periodontal disease patients come back for frequent follow-up appointments to ensure their dental health and avoid recurrence of their disease. Depending on the severity of your periodontal disease, Dr. Kissel recommends his patients return for follow-up appointments every 2-6 months. Most commonly, a three month maintenance time frame is recommended. This will help periodontist Dr. Kissel keep your mouth healthy and periodontal disease at bay.

2. Do You Offer Sedation?

Most services provided by periodontists like Dr. Kissel only require local anesthesia, but some patients will require a bit more sedation. This may be because of dental anxiety, or because a patient’s periodontal disease requires more invasive treatment.

For men and women whose periodontal disease has progressed to the point of tooth loss, Dr. Kissel can restore their smile by placing dental implants. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Kissel today to begin your process to a healthier smile today!
